Celebration of Purple Hull Peas Week

The PurpleHull Pea Festival and World Championship Rotary Tiller Races are Friday and Saturday in Emerson, Ark.-- which, of course, you already knew.

If you didn't, check the past few posts on this blog or go to

If you don't race, there is more competition for you to get involved in, including cooking with peas and, as evidenced by these pictures, shelling them.

The competition, as you note here, is hot. The photos can't really capture it. But again, you can compete Saturday if you wish or just go meet the athletes. Check the Tuesday Teddy column in the Conversations sections at for yet MORE info.

Happy peain'!
